Re: Grassick/h family Strathdon/Corgarff/Wester Chappelton

Helen Grassick, age 33, head of household, crofter, Wester Chapeltown, Strathdon [also in household: Penelope Grassick, niece, age 11] This looks very good now as there is a Penelope Grassick born 1839 to Hary Grassick who I believe to be a...

Gamekeepers

Just in case any of you had gamekeeper ancestors you can't find in Scotland, I accidentally came across this listing of gamekeepers in Ireland in both the 1901 and 1911 census. It looks like about 100 on each list were born in Scotland - including my own ancestor, Peter Mitchell. Hope it might be of...

Re: John Watson Guild, Banchory-Ternan

Thanks both!

John Watson Guild, Banchory-Ternan

I'm de-clluttering and getting distracted by re-finding family history bits 'n' pieces. One of these is an ancestor's obituary which states that he was active in the John Watson Guild, Banchory. Anyone know anything about this Guild?
